Scientists had always assumed that when phages drill their way through the outer membrane, they first have to soften it up a bit in some way, says Mark van Raaij, a biologist and virus expert at the Instituto de Biologia Molecular de Barcelona in Spain, who was not involved in the work. But the discovery of the sharp iron needle, he says, suggests that P2 and Φ92 don't need any help. "It's like driving a nail or stake through the membrane of the bacteria."
I'd suggest more guile than force is involved. Think bait. I'll see if I can find a reference to support this conjecture.
To: caveat emptor
Think of all of the psuedo science based on pure utter b s these a holes have been delivering into our homes and lives.
Gmo’s , seeds, fruitflies......drugs with horrible side effects..not based on cure.
There is no money in cure, money is in treatment .
Our agencies are up to their asses in corruption!.
